WoW Classic Burning Crusade Arena Tournament
Blizzard has announced its plans to launch its next big World of Warcraft Classic event on Battle.Net this week.
The Burning Crusade Arena Tournament will feature the top 16 teams in North America and Europe.
And the best ones go to this weekend’s live broadcast, Classic Arena Tournament (CAT).
The Arena tournament will be broadcast on YouTube and Twitch, with Blizzard telling gamers today:
“From over 150 teams that signed up for last weekend’s qualifiers, to just eight teams left in both North America and Europe, is the epic conclusion to WoW Esports’ first Burning Crusade Classic Arena Tournament.
“The remaining teams, made up of some of the best 3v3 players in the world, have mastered the legendary Arena for their shot at a total prize pool of $30,000 (USD).
“CAT is our celebration of all things WoW pvp as we go back to the best game of 2007 and where WoW Esports originally started.
“We’ll be joined by special guest casters, as well as Burning Crusade Classic Lead Producer Holly Longdale, so read on so you don’t miss a moment of what is sure to be a truly classic weekend.”
Arena World Championship casters Supatease, Venruki and Ziqo will run the agency all weekend, where they will be joined by Esfand, MrGM and Pikaboo.
The team will take on the best plays and games, with Holly Longdale as part of the agency’s lineup on Sunday.
